  5. Saw this recipe on FB and am going to try it as it is unless I add some bacon bits. Looks delicious and from all the five stars people have given it I can’t wait to try it. Thank You for posting such good recipes and easy to find too.

  6. I use most of the ingredients listed in your macaroni salad but I mash up most if not all the yolks and mix them with the mayo & other ingredients and chop up the egg whites and put in. Instead of pickles I use about two tbls of sweet pickle juice. The smoked paprika is a good idea of which I’ll use next time. Enjoy the recipes. Thanks for your recipe.5 stars
